Calling All Admits: Share Your Journey on Clear Admit’s MBA DecisionWire

We’d like to offer hearty congratulations to all who gained admission to their top choices and encourage you to share which business school you plan to attend this Fall. MBA DecisionWire was designed to let MBA applicants, students and alumni share more information with their peers—specifically about where they decide to attend business school based on where they applied and were accepted.

DecisionWire provides profile and school selection information updates in real time from your peers as they make the all-important decision of where to actually pursue their MBA. Users can filter others’ submissions by the schools applied to, admitted to and enrolled at, as well as by application year.

Stanford Wharton BoothOf the people who got into both Harvard and Stanford, where are most ultimately planning to go? How does that compare to previous years? When deciding between Columbia, NYU Stern and Chicago Booth for investment banking, who chooses which school? How many schools did other applicants apply to? Of those, how many did they gain admission to? These are but a few of the data points DecisionWire helps you extract.

DecisionWire also invites those who submit to share their GPA and GMAT scores, as well as any scholarship offers and their intended post-MBA career. A notes section lets people reveal any factors that may have influenced their final decision, such as financial aid, size of student body, location or a given school’s track record for placing graduates in a chosen industry. In essence, each entry will tell an individual’s story—from starting the application process to setting foot on campus.

Still unsure of where to go?  No problem. Applicants can choose the “Undecided” status before they have made a decision of where to enroll, effectively enabling them to invite thoughts and advice from the Clear Admit community when they are facing a particularly complex choice.

Whether celebrating a decision or still deliberating, a number of you have already submitted to DecisionWire this application season, revealing a range of interesting details.

DecisionWire Submissions from Recent MBA Admits

Take, for example, the applicant accepted to Cornell / JohnsonMichigan / Ross, and Northwestern / Kellogg, who excitedly reported plans to head to Kellogg. “Came down to fit (best for family), strength of brand, and employment figures for consulting. Excited to be headed to Evanston in the fall!”

Sometimes reasons aren’t as plentiful or clear cut.  For instance, an international student seeking a career in investment banking saw a dozen comments on their quandary of acceptance to Cornell / Johnson and Duke / Fuqua, while waiting to hear from Stanford GSB and Yale SOM.

Here’s just a sample of how our community responded:

We hope you’ll enjoy using DecisionWire as much as LiveWire!
